Just stopping By

I am sort of bummed because in all the excitement of my spring break and of course Easter, I didn't take a photo of my own. I have nothing tangible to show of a wonderful week!!! Perhaps I will borrow from someone who was more 'on top of things,' as they say. So, here is the link to my sister's (Joleen) blog, if you want to meet someone terrific and see some shots from the last week or so.

Unfortunately the same absent-mindedness has been following me for a while. I have got to snap out of it and reprioritize. Lately I feel like everything I do is on the run and therefore, is not quite done to the best of my ability...yes, that includes blogging. I feel like I am running around and 'just stopping by' everywhere I go. I am embarrassed to admit, that I even ran a red light today. It wasn't even close to being green. I just went, and I'm lucky I didn't cause an accident or kill someone. As scary as that was, it sort of woke me up. I am going to try my best, over the next few days, to really concentrate on what I am doing...to be selective about the activities I choose and to slow down. Wish me luck and for those of you who have been running around as fellow chickens, I pray for a moment of peace for you.

Until next time...

I'm glad you're okay! Sometimes we need wake up calls like that, I suppose. I'm just glad nothing bad happened! I also need to reprioritize. Lifes too short to be stressed all the time. Thanks for the reminder. :)

I too and glad that you are okay!

Part of the problem with people today is that we are always on the go. Busy, busy, busy....and for what? the stress we create is self inflicted. We make the choices to live as we do and so with that mind we need to make better choices. You are right! Prioritizing is of the utmost importance! At some point I too will be back to blogging as well but right now I feel that I can only contribute to posting comments on others blogs. Just try to stay focused and always keep in mind that we can only do so much in a day. Sometimes (not often) I think that a little dust on my furniture makes for a happier me! :)

While the dust on my furniture never makes me happy, I have learned over the years to just leave it there. I so remember the times when you got yelled at for a toy on the floor. Why? That toy should have reminded me of the moment it created while being played with. I am happy to say that throught the years I have worked hard at trying to slow down to savor the moment. How successful am I? I start over every day! Good luck sweetheart and try not to be hard on yourself when you discover you've fallen back on to bad habits. Focus on the times when you actually find your success in this endeavor. It is lifelong. I love you and will be praying for you. I'm so glad nothing bad happened when you ran the light. Glad you are able to use it as a wake up call! Hugs...
